    baby feeding

    I have a question for all of you. Is it normal for the oldest baby to start feeding the younger two? On checking the baby Sun conures, I saw Dozer (our oldest baby Sun conure) feeding Runt (the middle baby Sun conure). Any advice is appreciated.

    Thanks;
    John

    They will normally allo-feed when they get older, but at this age they don't actually regurgitate any food. it looks like they are feeding each other, but they are really just trying to get food from each other
